just had a question about a potentially controversial issue on the bay shore cal trans station on the san mateo county side and different efforts to look into moving it into san francisco side north and can you talk about that issue? >> sure. so the topic you are talking about is the idea to move that bay short cal trans station north from where it is now into san francisco? and we understand that that is an idea that has been put out there. it has been made pretty clear to us that it's not necessarily and idea that would benefit them and for efforts that are jointly funded and efforts that are looking to what are joint benefits to both counties, we would look at ideas that would jointly benefit the counties. while we understand that that idea is something that san francisco is interested in moving forward with and with the authority staff were interested in finding opportunities to look at that and move that idea forward, we are not going to enter that into joint effort we have with san mateo county to preserve relationships and respect the process that has been thus far conducte

contract is for a total of 7 hundred bikes 350 will be in san francisco the rest will be down the cal train corridor so very much a pilot and used to evaluate the benefit of bike share in terms of getting more people on the bikes and out of their car giving people more options how to make short trips in the city. although the time it's taken this pilot up and going i think many other cities have already gone past proofing the concept this pilot program was initial ly meant to be 500 bikes but because of funding constraints it's only 7 hundred but we will be reaching out to our regional partners to see if we can get that number up to a thousand. and look to expand we're very confidence that as every other city that's tried this it will be very successful. the good news is the contract is finally awarded and the bikes should be in place and operational by august so a great big step forward. and then just two items on muni service changes 2 different things we're doing one temporary one permanent the temporary one is an extension of what we did during the christmas and new year holiday.

a more resilient community. for the northern california cal chapter of the earthquake engineering institute, i want to state that we are in favor of creation of mandatory for wood frame buildings in the city. the proposed ordinance learned from experience from other areas in the city and other areas. there have been inventories in santa clara counties and they have done great work in this area, there are mandatory evaluations ordinances in berkeley andal alameda. we feel practical experience exist to facilitate a program such as san francisco is looking at here today. we feel the cap study to reach a wide variety of audiences and they have a technical group and many stake holders groups involved in that area and from other cities and other programs that these can help these along. i just would like to say the adoption of the ordinance would be an important milestone. i would like to pledge the support of our organization to support you. >> thank you very much. >> next speaker. >> good afternoon. i'm john berry, speaking on behalf of myself. i'm a small time realtor and property ma

assumed for dpis cal year 13 mf 14 for non-profits and two, there is no reduced or cost of doing business increases as a balance strategy throughout this report. the assumption that there is no cpi to non-profits this coming year was made because it wasn't part of the last budget. that's a fantasy, we never had a conversation about this second fiscal year in the two year budget and non-profits are facing the same cost pressures the city is facing, health care costs and inability to give raises, the issues are all the same, we have said repeatedly, if we are part of the solution, then we want to be part of the problem, we need to be in this deficit, secondly, the assumption that there won't be any cost of doing business increases, it costs around 20%. years of double digit health care costs, no raises, the city keeps paying lip service to this issue you tell us we're important, let's do something about it in good faith, let's have the conversation and not shut the door. >> any members of the public who wish to comment on item number 1? okay, seeing none, public comment is closed.

california health benefits exchange and the expansion of the medi-cal program. in addition, the future of health care must emphasize prevention, outpatient and community services, and a comprehensive network of care. our health care delivery systems must focus on managing patient needs across many setting, from primary care to outpatient, inpatient, from routine to urgent, to emergency. our proposed facilities do differ from those for the plans that we developed several years ago, the more modest plans for cathedral hill also reflect our concerns about the affordability of our project due in part to delays that you are all familiar with. what is in front of you today supports cpmc's projected ability to take care of our patients. this plan includes 2 74 beds at the cathedral hill campus, and 120 beds at st. luke's. and as you heard, this represents a 50% reduction at cathedral hill and a 50% increase at st. luke's. the cathedral hill campus which will be our largest campus will be centrally located at the corner of geary and van ness and will continue to be the home for most of our ter
